The Ukrainian Parliament approved the country’s National Security and Defense Council's decision to impose sanctions on Iran.

A massive 328 lawmakers voted in favor of the bill on Monday to endorse the decision to impose sanctions on Iran for 50 years for allegedly supplying Russia with weapons during its ongoing invasion.

"The resolution synchronizes Ukrainian sanctions with the actions of the entire civilized world on the path to the complete isolation of Iran," the parliament’s statement said.

Among the sanctions are a ban on trade, the transit of Iranian resources, flights, and transportation within Ukraine, according to Ukrainian media.

Additionally, any investment in Iran and the transfer of technologies and intellectual property rights by its residents will be banned.

Iranians will also be prohibited from using electronic means to conduct payments, while the Ukrainian National Bank will not be permitted to register international payment systems operated by Iran.

On Sunday, Ukraine's President Volodymyr Zelensky proposed a law seeking sanctions against Iran for 50 years after Tehran supplied Moscow with munitions and drones. Three days earlier he urged Iranians not to cooperate with Russia.

Iran has supplied hundreds of Kamikaze drones to Russia that have been used to target mainly Ukrainian infrastructure and civilians since September 2022. Tehran has denied that it has sent any drones to Moscow since the invasion of Ukraine began in February 2022, but Kyiv has presented overwhelming material evidence showing Russia has used Iranian-made Shahed drones.
